Today in honor of Spring that is begging to stay long term in Colorado I would like to show you how you can make your own Fabric Flowers using Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid by Helmar Adhesives
First lets assemble the cast of characters!
You will need some fabric or fabric scraps whatever you have in your stash
Fabric Stiffener & Draping Liquid
A foam brush
Either dies or punches or just use scissors. I used some flower dies by Cuttlebug
Wax paper to lay your fabric down on.
First you want to brush the Fabric Stiffener & Draping Liquid on each of your pieces of fabric. It coats on white but dries clear so you can see where you have applied the adhesive to.
Apply liberally all over your fabric and allow to dry. It takes about 30 minutes or less to dry but I left mine to dry overnight because I had other things I needed to get to - like laundry and grocery shopping and sleeping - you know every day things.
Using your die or punch or scissors punch or cut out the shape you want to do. You'll notice that the fabric has sort of a sheen to it now. In case you didn't know Fabric Stiffener & Draping Liquid by Helmar is Non Toxic and Acid Free!
I layered all 3 different fabrics to make layered flowers using 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and sort of scrunched them. The Fabric Stiffener allows you to scrunch or manipulate your fabric embellishments at whim and they'll hold their shape!
This is the final project I made and I love that I have some homemade one of a kind accents to complete my project.
All papers and buttons to crate this layout were provided by our awesome sponsor Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker.
And the burlap string was provided by Creative Impressions.
Thanks for stopping by. Now get scrapping!
